A sweet retelling of Jesus' miraculous feeding of the 5,000, from the voice of a young girl who was among the people that day. She takes us moment by moment through that blessed meal, and what it meant to her. The message of inclusivity and care for our fellow man underpins this important scriptural story.

Don’t Send the People Away
Music and Lyrics by Rebecca Minor

What a day full of healing
The lame leapt, the blind saw
Jesus beheld with compassion
The people who witnessed in awe.

Then the dusk descended, and cooled the air.
He wanted to feed those who followed him there.
The twelve said “Master, this vast multitude
Cannot be fed with such limited food.”

Despite their disquiet, they heard Jesus say:
“Don’t send the people away.
Don’t send the people away.”

I was just a child, and yet,
What happened I’ll never forget.

There were five thousand mouths to feed,
With two fish and some bread.
Rather than scoff at the meager loaf,
Jesus broke it and blessed it instead.

Then the baskets traveled from hand to hand;
An unlikely feast in that desolate land.
When all were filled, there was more that remained.
And stories were told of how we were sustained.

And God’s Love inspired the courage to say
Don’t send the people away.
Don’t send the people away.

Don’t send the people –
God cares for his people.
Don’t send the people away.
